Subdomain and CName, What is the best SSL type?
Basically, I have two subdomains:
sub1.domain.com has an A record to ip xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
and sub2.domain.com has a cname to sub1.domain.com
I want to use SSL for both subdomains.. What would be the best SSL Certificate type to use in this case? Any idea?
Either two single domain certs or a wildcard
You can use free SSL from WoSign, it supports up to 100 sub domains if I'm correct.
Or, if it's not viable, you can just redirect/rewrite all the request for sub2 to sub1 and be done with only 1 domain ssl cert.
I don't think that would work, what if someone tries to access sub2 using https? They will get a SSL error if a cert is not signed.
Wildcard ssl will do *.domain.tld
Multi domain ssl will do combine different site aa.domainA.tld + bb.domainA.tld + abc.domainB.tl + etc
if you only need 2 subdomain, better get each subdomain single cert ssl. cheaper ;p
Two cheapo certs will be cheaper
Unless you go for the free wildcard cert with VPS from VMBox or similar offers: http://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/60295/vmbox-co-ssd-cached-free-wildcard-ssl-20-year-la-2-ipv4-s-3-month-nl-phx-la-ddos-protected/p1
Also the OP still didn't explain why WoSign is not to his satisfaction
it fits the requirement perfectly (can just add the 2 required domains) and is free.
